HILLSBORO, Ore.- On March 16, 2022, Judge Andrew Erwin found Luis Arturo Cinencio-Gonzalez guilty of three counts of first-degree rape, seven counts of first-degree sexual abuse, one count of first-degree sodomy, and two counts of second-degree sexual abuse in a bench trial. On April 27, 2022, Judge Erwin sentenced the defendant to 630 months in prison. Deputy District Attorney Sara Loebner prosecuted the case against the defendant. 

In January of 2021, one of the defendant’s three victims reported that he abused her years prior. She also told Beaverton police that another child was abused by the defendant during the same time. Investigators contacted the second victim who confirmed the abuse and provided additional details. During the investigation, a third victim was also identified. 

The first victim to come forward exchanged text messages with the defendant in which he admitted to the abuse and apologized for his actions. Investigators also spoke to the defendant after he was arrested. He again admitted to the abuse. 

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office wishes to commend the victims in the case for their courage and participation in the court process. This office also thanks Beaverton police and the Oregon Department of Human Services for their work.
